About us:

Pancreatic Cancer Action, (registered charity No.1137689) was founded in 2010 by a rare survivor of the disease. We are a small team headed by our Founder & Chief Executive who runs the charity plus a board of Trustees, which provides direction for the organisation. In August 2020 Pancreatic Cancer Action merged with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland making our team stronger than ever.

Pancreatic cancer has only a seven per cent survival rate and this figure has not improved significantly for over 40 years. Despite it being the fifth biggest cancer killer in the UK, pancreatic cancer receives only three per cent of overall research funding. With a strong focus on early diagnosis, it is Pancreatic Cancer Action’s aim to improve survival rates through awareness, medical education, improved patient information and by funding research specifically into the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Simply, we want more people diagnosed in time for surgery, currently the only potential for a cure.
